General Election 2010 Pros and Cons of a Hung Parliament

Pros: Technically, it is more democratic. Instead of one party having all the power, despite others being voted for, power is shared across the House, so more people’s views are represented. Cons: It’s more likely to collapse due to disagreements. It takes longer for decisions to be made. You tend to get weaker legislation, because those in charge are trying to please all elements of the coalition.
